During a panel hosted at PAX East, SNK announced the SNK 40th Anniversary Collection.

The release will be a curated collection of the best years of the publisher’s early years, created in collaboration with Digital Eclipse.

It will include Alpha Mission, Athena, Crystalis, Ikari Warriors, Ikari III: The Rescue, Guerrilla War, P.O.W., Prehistoric Isle in 1930, Psycho Soldier, Street Smart, TNK III, Vanguard, Victory Road, and more that will be announced down the line.

Features will include Rewind and Save for all games, redesigned controls, upscaled 1080p visuals, and optional cheats to make the old challenging games a bit more accessible.

Below you can check out the limited edition for the Nintendo Switch. For the moment, the Switch version was the only one announced during the panel and in the subsequent press release sent in by publisher NIS America.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
